Perhaps no other phrase more accurately echoes the legacy
of Jason Madachy. Although a first generation college student,
Jason wanted to be a doctor from an early age.
As a pre-med graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, Jason was pursuing his aspirations of attending Marshall
Medical School and becoming a doctor when he tragically lost his life in June of 2007 while on a family vacation in
Nags Head, North Carolina. Despite his early passing, his inspired commitment to help others was felt; it was forever
solidified when his parents created the Jason Madachy Foundation to honor his memory. Today, the phrase, “Excel In
Leaving A Mark” is engraved on each and every stethoscope the foundation donates to first year medical students in
hopes that recipients will impact the world with the same grace as Jason.
As the fraternity chair for Sigma Pi Fraternity in college, Jason organized events that raised money for numerous
charities. He also participated in Relay for Life, Cleveland Sight Center, Special Olympics of Ohio, and Swim for
Diabetes. He was also instrumental in bringing Phi Delta Epsilon, a medical fraternity to Miami University, where he
was in charge of recruitment.
Jason’s parents, Joe and Dolly Madachy of Concord, Ohio wanted to fulfill Jason’s dream of making a difference and
established the Jason Madachy Memorial Scholarship at Miami University. Since 2008, this scholarship has been
given out every year to a junior or senior going into medicine with a GPA of at least 3.25 with a preference for Greek
Life, but most importantly they needed to be involved in philanthropy.
